Mother Jones Radio 09-03-06: McKenzie Funk Interview


Publication date 2006-09-03
McKenzie Funk tells us the story of one falsely accused "enemy combatant" who spent almost two years at Guantanamo. Funk tells us how a young man selling pencils on the streets of Peshawar found himself bound, gagged, and on a plane to Cuba. Funk tells us about the detainee's worst week at Guantanamo. "They put him in what he calls the 'metal box'," says Funk. "It was a small metal box with some sort of metal coil in the roof...it was completely sealed. There was a plexiglass window. So by night, they would pump in cold air, and he was completely naked actually, and was just sitting there shivering. So he would shiver at night, and by day the coil would come on, and it would get incredibly hot."
